Colossal Youth

Juventude em Marcha

Directed by Pedro Costa
Portugal, 2006
Avant-Garde, Drama


Many of the lost souls of Ossos and In Vanda’s Room return in the spectral landscape of Colossal Youth, which brings to Pedro Costa’s Fontainhas films a new theatrical, tragic grandeur. This time, Costa focuses on Ventura, an elderly immigrant from Cape Verde living in Lisbon.
